I am constantly referring people on the Wilton.com forum to videos on your site. (The ones referred most often are "Cake Construction" and "How to cover a cake with fondant using The Mat". ) New bakers have SO many questions and your videos hit the cake nail right on the head!
I began cake decorating at the age of 56 with the first of the Wilton classes at my local Michaels store. Like many others, it has turned into a passion. I have spent hundreds of hours online learning and videos like those from Sweetwise, Inc. are a blessing.
(p.s. I bought The Mat, but haven't used it yet--I'm looking forward to my next fondant cake!)
The ivy leaf plunger cutter is made out of plastic. It can be use to decorate the cake. It comes in a set of three. The measurement for the ivy leaf plunger is small 15mm medium 22mm and large 28mm. It is also easy to wash and clean.
Effective way of creating realistic flowers. This set of 3 deep veined Holly Leaf plunger cutters are extremely easy to use and produces excellent results. Simply press cut and eject. Made from strong food-grade plastic with aluminium spring mechanisms.
The two ended tool is extremely useful in shaping flowers and adding texture to them. The larger end has a wide curved edge to add a curl to the edge or round a petal. The second side is thinner and comes to a point and is great for adding lines and texture to petals.
With cut-outs it is easy to make fun 3-D shapes for your fondant cakes and cupcakes. Just roll out the fondant, press down with cut-outs and lift away! Remove shapes with a small spatula. Stainless steel shapes range from 5/8 in. to 2 1/2 in
1. Layered decorations! Stack cut-out fondant pieces in different sizes and colors. 2. Fondant fill-ins! Use a smaller cut-out to remove the center of your fondant decoration. Fill in with a different color! 3. Cake insets! Cut out shapes from your fondant-covered cake, then replace the pieces with your favorite colors.
